This website houses the guidance for staff in implementing the University Course Delivery Principles during the 2023/24 academic year. This guidance is kept under review and will be updated as new information becomes available or circumstances change. 

Our overriding aim is to deliver the best possible student experience and our approach to delivery in 2023/24 needs to build towards the LTA Framework 2023-2030 which defines our future approaches to learning and teaching. A course approach to student learning and engagement will be taken with course delivery models designed to engage students with learning, with the physical campus and resources and facilities on offer, through interactions with each other and with staff (digital and face to face). Teaching events that combine simultaneous on-campus and online delivery are not recommended unless they have proved to work well.  

This year sees the updating of the University Grade Descriptors to a consistent approach across all levels.

Courses will need to be resilient to changes, including those arising from Public Health guidance, and deliverable within resource constraints (staff and space). Taught sessions will be recorded and made available to students in line with the Code of Practice for Recording of Taught Sessions. 

The guidance has been structured into three sections, based on key activities related to teaching delivery:
